    “A Little Hidden Gem”

    The location is perfect for all your adventures ...

    The location is perfect for all your adventures. The property itself is beautiful, clean & tidy, you really feel as if you are at home. Set in the most scenic of settings Wonderful fire to keep you warm & cosy in the evening. Only a 2½ hour drive from Dublin. Great space inside the home for a family to retreat & relax. The owners have thought of everything. Local shops for shopping or you have a Lidl Supermarket in Galway, which I would recommend you use. Only reasons being is the local shops can be expensive. Plenty of adventures to be had away from Castleview; ideal for those who like walking. Lough Corrib is breathtaking, Hill of Doon has fantastic views, Co Galway great for shopping, a pint of Guinness, buskers in the street, Galway Cathedral the history for the Cathedral being built & the seaside is around 30-minute drive. I was only there for 4 days

About the location


Galway 17 miles.

The traditional village of Oughterard is found in the west of Ireland on the shores of Lough Corrib, at the start of the Connemara Mountain range and close to the famous Western Way. Home to the Oughterard 18-hole championship golf course, Derroura Mountain Bike Trail and Aughnanure Castle, there are lots of things to see and do, and located next to Lough Corrib, Oughterard is great for lovers of fishing. Just a short drive away in Roscahil is the pretty Brigit's Garden; with four main gardens and places to play, sit and relax, this is a great day out for all the family. Only 17 miles from Oughterard lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. A lovely lough-side village, all year round.
